Thanks, my intake manifold has to come off soon anyway so will try that and give it a go Very Happy

A project thread would be awesome by the way, would be great to have all of it together. Cool

Awesome TRD shifter, i've never seen these for sale in NZ before, did they come straight from Japan?

Is that the sensor that goes into the intake?
I went through Toyota for the TRD SS, so yea straight from japan, sadly I think they've stopped doing a ST18#, I know how you feel, my celica gen has also had a few discountinued items. Yup thats the sensor (measures the temperature of the air when it cames into the intake), mine never came with one, but still had the loom plug, just no sensor. will keep you updated when they are fitted

Yea they have discontinued the SS for the ST18X but the ST20X and ZZT23X can be used with a little modification Very Happy

When i fitted my pod filter, at first i left the sensor hanging next to the filter but thought it would be better to have it in the intake hose. Didn't feel any difference to power or fuel economy Neutral

The shifts are shorter & crisper. the location of the gears are more clearer, so your less likely to miss shift.

Awesome, thats what i like about your car that you have only used top quality parts like TRD and Tein.

Can't wait to see them fitted to the car, especially with your white wheels Very Happy

What I've been up to in the weekend

thats just after putting the teins in when we pulled of the other wheel it was just off the ground, as you see lots of clearance Smile

comparing the 2

weight standard 8.6kg & the are tein 7.9kg I'm pretty sure




thats the wheel just off the ground.



thats it on the ground


using the 7gc rims for the moment until I'm happy with the ride hieght, and I dont ruin the 6spoke rims



Doing the fronts






weight for Teins 6.9kg factory was 9.2kg


weather was ok, sunny and hot, butwith big storm clouds on the way, Tein where all installed & went inside for a break. The it starts pissing down



manage to get all the tools etc out if the rain, after 5 minutes it stops and we carried on







Cant have the fronts too low, due to some big speed bumps, & I dont want to 'crab' it everwhere.

maybe not the best example heres before tein



Put the dampner on the hardest setting, VERY bumpy. driving along, but braking is just so good, got the dampnering setting on 12 (I think thats what tein recommends aswell)





still too bumpy, so its on 0 or 1 (I think your also suppose to have them on a low number to run them in??)

thanks, yeah the wheel arches are pretty big, but I think it looks pretty good now.

its not too bad to do, helps if you have a mate to help & 2 jacks so theres not too much strain on the swaybar

nope, I feel lucky sometimes, I dont get the problems

Sounds good, has the gen 3 3SGE got the 'shim over bucket' arrangement do you know?

Toms T.E.C.H II ECU should go sweet, never new TOMS supplied them for 3SGE's, learn something new everyday Very Happy
